When I received this month's Chewy review selections, there was a brand I was unfamiliar with, so I did some research. I was more than pleasantly surprised with the results and I'll share them with you.
The brand of dog food was Wild Calling. I had never heard of them and before I feed anything to my pack, I want to know where, what and why.
Now here is the very best part. If you have a dog with special dietary needs, this may be the food for you. When a dog shows signs of a food allergy or sensitivity, the vet usually suggests a food with a unique protein source. My vet tells me that the three most common food sensitivities are beef, wheat and dairy.
In our case, Fudge and Noah have both become sensitive to beef. Noah can eat chicken, but Fudge can't. We solved the problem by feeding duck, a protein that neither boy had ever had before and tolerated well.
The problem arises when the dog can't eat any of the common protein sources and here is where Wild Calling comes in. All their food is 100% grain free and 96% meat. None of their sources come from China. They offer many unique protein sources so that even the most sensitive tummy should find one that works. They offer the usual beef and chicken, but also turkey, rabbit, buffalo, salmon, duck, elk, lamb, pork, alligator and kangaroo. They also have some combos. They have added liver to each of their foods and show on their site and their containers that the salmon and triple delight combo both contain chicken liver, for those with a chicken issue.
So armed with all this info, I ordered Wild Calling Rainbow River for my girls to try. It's 96% salmon.
First, I love the label designs.
So what did my girls think? I set the bowls down and picked up my camera, but by the time I turned it on, Tess was the only one who hadn't finished. I guess they liked it. They liked it A LOT. And so did I. I'm not sure how I'd like the fishy smell in the morning, but for an evening meal, it was fine.
As usual, Chewy sent us a case of Wild Calling Salmon at no cost to us, in exchange for our honest review.
